Casting is set for Douglas Lyons and Ethan D. Pakchar’s newest collaboration, Beau, playing the Adirondack Theatre Festival August 3–9
Starring as the seven storytellers of Ace Baker are Matt Rodin, Jeb Brown, Amelia Cormack, Marlene Ginader, Olivia Griffin, Max Sangerman, and Jeremy Sevelovitz.
The play, directed by Michael Wilson, follows Ace Baker, who sought paternal guidance through music after spending his early years fatherless. The story is a multi-generational look into what it means to be queer and celebrated.
Beau features a book and lyrics by Lyons (Beautiful), who collaborated on the funk-folk score with Pakchar (Five Points).
The creative team also includes choreographer Josh Rhodes, musical supervisor Chris Gurr, costume designer David C. Woolard, and set designer Christopher Rhoton. Beau is produced by Adirondack Theatre Festival, a non-profit, professional theatre currently in its 25th anniversary Season.
